You are really one of the best modeler I've ever seen!!!

I would go further: Chuck Doan IS the best in his field - far ahead from all of us (and I hope I will not offend anybody here  Roll Eyes). Ok, there are a some others too, but all in other branches, and they can be counted on one hand, e.g.
Chris Flodberg, Kim hyun-soo - maritime modelling
Randy Hage, Ichiyoh Haga - diorama modelling
...

But what distinguishes the work of Chuck is, that he has, against current trends, never strived his own style. Maybe you know the work of Adam Wilder and his methode of color modulating or the style of Mig Jimenez - all outstanding modelers without daubts and all with their personal syle.
IMHO Chuck goes a step further: He never cares about styles, he "simply" captures the real thing, and that in such a way, non of all other artists can archieve. His models ARE the real thing.

So... thank you, Chuck, for sharing us your techniques.

Actually I am a much better modeler than Chuck, and quite prolific, but far too modest to post my work. Chuck and the others are aware of that, of course, because I taught them everything they know, help with the detail work, and do all the final finishing. Their nickname for me, in French of course, is le menteur. If you don't know the translation, you should look it up; it's very flattering. -- ssuR

 "Le Menteur" . That is one of the many nicknames they have for you . I rather favour an even more flattering nickname :

   " Le LegEnd " !

Sami, my post was a play on words. I wanted it to look like "mentor" but to mean exactly what it says: "liar"! -- Russ

You're right, he's not too bad. Looks like he models in about 1:12 scale but I couldn't find any verification. -- Russ

Thanks very much again for the nice words! I keep seeing some astounding model work on the internet, and thankfully weathering has become a big thing. Very nice to see (and learn) all the different techniques being used. I consider the hairspray paint chipping method as one of the best ever.

I have now glued the haulback drum in place and installed the bearing caps and 00-90 brass nuts. The grease on the gears was based pics of Shay locos and other open gears. The gear teeth were treated the same as earlier described. I am adding bits of pine needles and such to some of the bearing cap grease; this is another thing seen on some Shays that run in the forest. The chain drive sprockets will eventually attach to the brass axle stubs.  Now I need to figure out how to install the brake strap that winds around the wide end of the drum.

That is just awesome.

Looks to be as close to the real thing as your going to see.
